Subject: Re: Re-naming hurricanes


Well, it appears Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton have found yet something else to be pissed about. Maxine Waters, a black congresswoman reportedly complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian sounding names.

She would prefer some names that reflect African-American culture, such as Chamiqua, Tanisha, Woeisha, Shaqueal, and Jamal. She would also like the weather reports to be broadcast in language that street people can understand because one of the problems in New Orleans is that regular folks couldn't understand
the seriousness of the situation due to the racially biased & language of the weather report.

I can hear it now: A Houston weatherman says:

"Wazzup, mutha-fukkas! Hehr-i-cane Chamiqua be headin' fo' yo ass like Leroy on a crotch rocket! Bitch be a category fo'! So grab yo'chirren, yo' Ho, be leavin yo crib, and head fo' da nearest guv'ment office fo yo FREE shit!"

Too damn true, Yogi
Oddly enough....a little bit of diversity to the name system wouldn't be so bad. They DO tend to get rather boring.
I can't count the years I grew up listening to people talk like that, but in the last ten years or so, I've noticed people who used to speak like that speaking perfectly normal english. Makes me sort of wonder if these people are actually finding some self esteme.

Ciuld be. It's about time some people stopped thinking where they came from and started worrying about who they are now. Americans should be just that, this whole african or mexican American thing just fuels the fire.
